Sequilhos satisfy cookie cravings

Sequilhos are delicate, buttery, & easy to create. 

These meltaway cookies are made with butter, cornstarch, & condensed milk. 

A culinary school acquaintance from Brazil says these cookies are versatile. 

Others are made using powdered sugar & butter. Many bakeries add shredded coconut or lemon juice & zest for flavor. 

They're great with brigadeiros & Caipirinhas. First, measure cornstarch by weight, not volume, because cup measures are variable. 

If you don't have a kitchen scale, you'll need 2 to 3 cups cornstarch to get the dough to the appropriate consistency before you can knead it. 

So add cornstarch in batches! Second, chill dough for 20 minutes to 1 hour before baking. This ensures even baking.
